MILES: from trusted products to smarter solutions
At Shell Marine, we work with ship owners and equipment manufacturers to learn how we can help our customers to reduce their operating complexity and costs. Shell Marine’s new marine integrated lubrication and expert solutions (MILES) programme aims to help by combining purchasing options, services and an extensive lubricant range into a strategy that addresses these pressing operational concerns. This unique approach to lubricants management can help to improve reliability, efficiency and profitability.
A wave of new regulations, changing engine technology, new fuels, cost-efficiency pressures and digitalisation is making complexity the new normal. To thrive without increasing their operating costs, ship owners are adapting their operating profiles. Naturally, they are looking to suppliers to help them optimise costs and complexity, thus leaving them to focus on their core business.
Enhancing reliability: through lubrication solutions
We offer an extensive range of lubricants for engines and equipment onboard your vessel. Main engine oils for all types of two- and four-stroke engines are available to meet varying engine and fuel specifications, even under the most extreme operating conditions. We have developed our portfolio to help optimise performance in new fuel-efficient engines, existing engines with years of life ahead, engines operating at full and part loads, and engines working inside and outside Emission Control Areas.
We also offer auxiliary oils and greases ranging from hydraulic fluids to environmentally acceptable lubricants for onboard equipment. Our range of technical services can help you get the most from our product portfolio, thereby helping you to achieve greater equipment reliability, reduced downtime and early diagnosis of potential faults.
